Better than the movie
The beauty of Rita Hayworth and some gorgeous costumes are about all there is to recommend this picture. It's a straight re-telling of the story behind Bizet's opera 'Carmen', but without the music it falls flat.
The trailer is excellent, though. It makes it seem as though you might enjoy the film, when I think most people almost certainly wouldn't. Therefore, I'd say it deserves a good rating.
